I have just finished reading a great book by Edwin Datschefski called "The Total Beauty of Sustainable Products". It was an easy to read, light introduction to the ethical and environmental issues we face as new designers, and also did a great job at introducing the reader to a wide variety of already established companies and how they were doing their bit sustain as ing our planets natural attributes. it also had some lovely art work and photographs in there and some great quotes from influential people in the design industry such as Philippe Starck.

I'm now beginning "The Green Imperative" by Victor Papanek which has come highly I look forward to immersing myself in this one!!



Zoe Grace Fletcher Currently undertaking a PhD at Manchester Metropolitan University within the MIRIAD post-graduate department, I am beginning a practice based academic journey into British wool fibres and new technologies within knitwear design. Graduating with Distinction from a Masters in Fashion and the Environment at London College of Fashion, specialising in hand-knitting and the British Wool Industry, I have worked on a number of knitwear collections (personal and external companies), whilst freelancing and researching for a number of exciting projects. My work revolves around the idea of sustainable fashion from a knitted perspective and the different ways to achieve this incorporating the ideas of slow fashion into mainstream society. I love knitting. And wool. And double sided sticky tape.
